How is dark mode working for you?

Wei Heng Atlassian Team Oct 29, 2020

Hey everyone! 

As you may have seen, we recently released Dark theme for the Confluence mobile apps. If this is news to you, check it out: 

This is how to activate it:

If you have used it, can you let me know how you're finding it? 

  • In the spirit of Halloween, do you like it dark (and spooky)? 
  • Are there certain features that you think could use more contrast? 
  • Do you find yourself using the app more at night because it is easier on the eyes? 

Would love to hear your thoughts for how we can improve!

Wow, Fantastic !!!

This is cool, I wish there was something to stop me crying on the browser from looking at the jira board in the night.

Sorry to hear that! Glad you are enjoying Dark Mode on Connie mobile though.

Hello @Wei Heng


What a great question for this time of the season 🎃

I really like the dark mode but have a few observations with respect to the tables. If a color is added to a cell, the font can be hard to see at times because it’s a light Gray. Also, for the macros, the dark mode doesn’t take effect which can shock the eyes in the dark! 

I added some screenshots of tables with other colors and what an “excerpt” macro renders.

Hi @Andrew Kendris

How was your Halloween? Any sightings of the blue moon? 🌚

Thanks for the feedback. Dark mode table colors are an issue we're actively working to address. You should see an improvement in a week or so when the latest iOS build (2.75+) is released to the app store. Check it out once you have the updated app and let me know if you like what you see? 🤞👍

We’re actively monitoring feedback for macros, but, are holding off on fixing the dark mode experience for macros until our team has had an opportunity to improve the macros experience overall and get the most popular ones to load inline.

I didn’t get a chance to see the blue moon in-person but checked out some photos the following day which were really cool. Next time we’ll have a full moon on Halloween is 2039 so I marked the calendar - ha! While there weren’t any Halloween parties planned, I knew I couldn’t go wrong with a classic scary movie 🍿.  

Thank you so much and I’ll be on the lookout for the next update and circle back with any further feedback! I did another pass on the dark mode and couldn’t think of anything else to report back.  I do have some more feedback for team calendars but I wait until there is another thread for that 😊 

@Wei Heng

I just got the latest update and the table colors are looking much better 😄52935BB0-2C8D-4315-9E9A-3E4CB7022F95.jpeg

@Wei Heng my pleasure! Thank you so much for the quick turnaround 👏 👏 I’ll keep compiling feedback on my end and await the next round of topics.

I really love the darkmode - played around for like 1 hour and I couldn't find anything that didn't work (iPhone 12) 

But I'm a newbie in Confluence mobile ☝️
